Are you thinking about buying a home?
Steve Prescott, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Capitol Properties, shares why now is a good time to buy a home in Cheyenne WY! Consider these ideas when you are ready to buy a home in 2019.
1. Unknown Forecast of Interest Rates – the current interest rate for a 30 year fixed mortgage is around 5.5% and expected to go to 6% by the end of the year. Still an excellent interest rate, but it does effect your buying power with each increase.
2. Market Holdovers – some people listed their homes late in 2018 and had to hold the home over during the holidays when the market slows down. Today you may be able to get a better value with those homes that have been on the market longer.
3. Appreciation Rate – the real estate market in Laramie County increased 5% last year. Buying a home sooner rather than later allows you to start gaining appreciation on your house.
